Wits student develops space plasma propulsion system

Last May, I gave a talk at the 3rd South African Space Association Congress on the possibility of developing a space propulsion system for moving very small satellites such as Cubesats when in orbit. This was the first time Phil and I presented our work to the local space community. We got a really positive response from everyone there and hopefully it will start building more support for the lab.

Thanks to Hans van de Groenendaal from EngineerIT magazine for writing a nice article showcasing my research on a small propulsion system.
